If you mean to just plug the Vodem straight into the PS3, then Id say it cannot be done unless someone has written drivers/interface for the PS3 to talk to the Vodem :)

Just a shot but how about one of the dual internet connection routers that have an ADSL modem and 3G connection via I think a USB (ie Vodem) or PCMCIA slot? Freitasm has one on his blog somewhere... Then Ethernet cable from your PS3 to router and Robert is your Mother's brother.

That device is very old now, and won't take the Vodems. You need one of these:
Draytek 2710




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Lot's of lag, due to hi ping of Mobile data. However this will change as VF upgrade their cell sites to HSPA.

There are a couple of sites around - Airport & Waiheke Is. Not sure when the plan to complete this upgrade phase. They are of course racing to get all their rural sites 3G enabled, so that is probably taking up the most of their resource.

So if monthly costs are not an issue, buy the new Dell Mini 9 for $0, plug the ethernet connection into the PS3, and share the 7.2 HSUPA modem built into the Dell with your PS3.  Plus you get a netbook which has better browsers than the PS3!  $74.95 a month.



Current vodem stick isn't HSUPA ready unfortunately.




I should add that the entire Vodafone 3G network is already HSDPA enabled.

I find the ping on HSPA is between 125ms o 175ms.

Is this really good enough for online gaming?

It works fine for VoIP.... but i haven't tested it with gaming.

HSDPA is not HSPA

HSPA is HSDPA and HSUPA

There are HSPA cells out there ping is average around 40 to 70ms (NZ traffic)

So what is Vodafone implenting? HSPA or HSPDA?

Will HSPA with pings of between 40ms and 70ms be available on handsets with 3g+?
